I attended Crain’s Newsmaker of the Year luncheon yesterday and was encouraged to hear Detroit  Mayor Mike Duggan say Detroit is closer to a turn around than most people think.

As someone who understands the challenges of turning around a city, I appreciate his optimism and focus. As I circled the room and chatted, I caught up with many influential leaders including Debbie Dingell, Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel, and Oakland County Executive Brooks Patterson among others.
